/11 and fighting our enemies and the problem with the obama administration is not that it is too assertive in the war but the problem is we are retreating around the world and emboldening our enemies. if rand paul wants to be to the left of the obama administration, he can try. maybe there is some support for that. >>chris: the president thinks that "bringing our troops home" but not in a rush but that is a winning message and the last campaign, frankly, republicans everyone not talking a lot about open-ended foreign commitments. does the g.o.p. need to recognize and respond to a war wearyness? >> the drone issue and war wearyness are two different issues. rand paul's war on drones is a war on a pretty successful tight against terrorism. i am not sure where that gets us. i agree with bill, the g.o.p. doesn't lose by being a strong party of national security. what the republicans lost were moderates in the election. 5 percent of moderates went to self described moderates, went to president obama, not the party. that is who you need to get back. do you not do it by a drone going after drones
that shows that the president obama administration has carried off this robust war by drones. 4,800 people have been killed by drone strikes under the obama administration. that is an astounding number. i think it is troublesome. the fact that rand paul had to go to such lengths to get that simple answer that is what resonated. i don't think it advanced the drone question that much but that is the beauty of politics in 2013. rand paul is pretty low key? he gave almost a lecture here. he is charismatic but he doesn't a -- >> i'm glad to see a politician stand for something, has core values. in something. stand up for something. on the other hand you have john mccain stuffing his face for president obama. if he had core values and core con visions he did not like what rand paul stood for, go to the filibuster and call him on it. what did he do? he waited until the next day, had a nice party with president obama, fed that fat face of his and then came back to the floor and made an issue about it. i understand that john mccain is a big supporter of the war on terror. i am as well. i understand
supported the bush administration after 9/11 and fighting epimieses and the problem with the obama administration is not that it is too assertive. the problem is that we are retreating all around the world and unfortunately emboldening our enemies. if rand paul wants to run to the left of the obama administration he is tree to ned ahat in the republican minute. maybe this is more is support for that than i think but i doubt there really is. >> chris: nina, the president thinks bringing the troops home not in a rush but steadily and eventually is a winning message in the last campaign, frankly not talking about open-ended commitments. does the gop need to recognize and respond to a war weariness in the country? >> i think the drone issue and war we areness are two totally different issues. rand paul's war and drones is a war on a pretty successful fight against terrorism right now. i'm not sure where that gets us. i agree with bill that the gop doesn't lose by being a strong party of national security. what we -- what the republicans lost were moderates new election. thin in the 56%
for ronald reagan and, been in the bush administration and the problem with the obama administration is not that it is too assertive but that we are retreating all over the world as unfortunately, emboldening our enemies and if rand paul wants to run to the left of the obama administration, he's free to try and maybe there is more support than i think but i'm doubtful that there really is. >> chris: nina, the president clearly thinks that, quote, bringing our troops home, not in a rush, but, steadily, and, eventually, is a winning message and in the last campaign, frankly, republicans were not talking a lot about open-ended foreign commitments. so does the g.o.p. need to recognize and respond to a war-weariness in the country. >> i think the drone issue and war-weariness are two different issues and rand paul's war on drones is a sort of a war on a pretty successful fight against terrorism, right now and i'm not sure where it gets us. i agree with bill. you know, the g.o.p. doesn't lose by being a strong party of national security. what we -- what the republicans lost were moderates.
is not on the obama administration's side either. no prior administration, republican or democrat, has ever attempted to waive the work requirements in the 16 years between the law's enactment and the july, 2012, information memorandum. following the july, 2012, action, the government accountability office looked into this and, quote, did not find any evidence that h.h.s. stated it has authority to issue waivers related to tanf work requirements, end quote. in short, no administration attempted to waive the work requirements because they knew it was illegal to do so. and finally, if we need more evidence that despite their promises to the contrary, the administration's policy would weaken the work requirement, we need look no further than the nonpartisan congressional budget office. this states $61 million over 10 years, because c.b.o. recognizes the administration's waivers will allow some states that will otherwise pay penalties failing to meet the work requirement. in addition to -- the legislation before us extends the tanf program's authorization at current funding levels through the remainder o

, it prohibits the obama administration from carrying out the benefits of implementing the administrati administrative logistics that are necessary to provide the benefits of what they call obama care, but it takes all of the revenue that comes in. all of the revenue ryan takes credit for then he cuts out the benefits trying to ensure it doesn't work. does something similar are dodd/frank, and, of course, it's more benefits for the wealthy and with deeper cuts for the poor who need it and less investment in america. i hope that enough of the american people are watching this debate so that they continue to realize that the middle is where president obama is and i think the vast majority of democrats and hopefully, you know, we can get some republicans to come onboard. but when you have these cpac conferences and you see mr. cantor just kowtowing to their agenda, the prospects are not bright. >> congressman jim moran, sir. thank you very much for joining us this friday. >> sure. >> stay with us. we have much more ahead.

, the obama administration said that we love to have the flexibility to go in and slice the funding as we see fit, as it should be be managed, we don't have that flexibility because of the way the law is written. so there is talk providing that in military areas, but in areas like this it's hard to see unless there's a ground swell for a short-term solution to he restore the money. >> greta: and i thought the republicans offered the flexibility to the white house and white house declined it. >> they offered it on the defense side and it may happen. they said they want it as part of a broader package over the sequester, but we're getting to the point look, the sequester is the law, it's happened, the cuts are implemented. i think there's going to be more pressure to say, wait a second, back this up and find it in the civilian area and find something that shouldn't be cut and we cut it. >> greta: or find $137,000 whatever the number is, in waste in the department of education and they won't. thank you. >> thank you. >> greta: on capitol hill, a debate the homeland security department released 2
a different result and what he said was this is about the obama administration trying to make me a scapegoat to try to cover their own failures elsewhere within the gsa and i'm not taking it. >> yeah, well he was the former leader of the entire gsa and also the leader of that rocky mountain divisions that sent dozens of employees to the lavish conference, and almost a million dollars of waste at that conference. if there's not accountability at the top for the people in charge of these people, i mean, who is going be to be held accountable for that? i think that's a very serious question and by the way, he was at at least one planning meeting for this conference. >> megyn: here they are, playing the ukulele on our dime, getting ready for the conference where they he get the commemorative coins and play with the mind reader and whatever else they did and we paid for. >> looks awesome. >> megyn: fantastic, if i didn't pay for it i'd feel better about it it. but he said they did not brief him of the details of purchasing and contracting and wasn't heavily involved in the planning. the question
that this and the answer has to be no. the fact that he got that shows that the president obama administration has carried off this robust war by drones. 4,800 people have been killed by drone strikes under the obama administration. that is an astounding number. i think it is troublesome. the fact that rand paul had to go to such lengths to get that simple answer that is what resonated. i don't think it advanced the drone question that much but that is the beauty of politics in 2013. rand paul is pretty low key? he gave almost a lecture here. he is charismatic but he doesn't a -- >> i'm glad to see a politician stand for something, has core values. in something. stand up for something. on the other hand you have john mccain stuffing his face for president obama. if he had core values and core con visions he did not like what rand paul stood for, go to the filibuster and call him on it. what did he do? he waited until the next day, had a nice party with president obama, fed that fat face of his and then came back to the floor and made an issue about it. i understand that john mccain is a big supporter of t
dropped a bombshell accusation against the obama administration. what he is claiming is now happening to the survivors. that's just ahead. bill: emotional testimony from the wife an american pastor jailed in iran. are her pleas for help falling on deaf ears? she will join us live next for the latest on that. martha: battle of the budgets, two very different ideas here. why house budget committee chairman paul ryan says his plan he believes is the right one. >> i would argue it is the president who has been missing in action on this front. he knows we have a debt crisis coming. all independent experts show us this. and so he hasn't even given us a budget yet. bill: 16 past. new warnings of a many looking debt crisis from house budget committee chair paul ryan arguing that his budget plan is what americans want and is the country's best chance to get a handle on this before it gets too late. here's paul ryan. >> house republicans have been offering budgets every year on this. so, yeah, people have been ducking these tough issues. people are hoping to use these issues to beat the other p
here. look at the last four years. the obama administration has put in place higher taxes and massive amounts of debt and burdensome regulations that make it more expensive for job creators to create jobs and have resulted in sluggish economic growth. for the past four years, 0.8% growth is what we have seen under this administration. you would hope that the democrats would be preparing the budget and looking at policies that will grow the economy. what we're hearing is that it will be more of the same. we are talking about trillion dollar tax increase and more spending and nothing to save social security and medicare by reforming those programs in a way that will align them with the future demographics of this country. it is more of the same policies with regards to their budget. we think there is a better way. we will look for opportunities to offer amendments that will point that out. bottom line, the democrat budget as we know it today is going to hurt jobs, the economy, and make it difficult for job creators to get americans back to work. that should be the fundamental question w
the united states, the obama administration now expected to announce that it will put additional resources to protect the united states. the catch here, fred, is that it's going to take several years and costs about $200 million to open up some of these silos. some congressional republicans i was speaking with say they argued against closing down some of these silos a few years ago when the obama administration did so. they said at the time the administration felt there wasn't a needed threat, that they didn't need as many interceptors. now they're going back and having to reopen them. some of the republican congressional folks i've been speaking with say the threat was there, the intel was there and now it's going to cost a whole lot of money to get these turned back on. >> all right. 14 more interceptors to be put in place. thank you so much. chris lawrence, appreciate that from the pentagon. i know he'll be briefing us later on as well. >>> for all you tech fans, samsung's new galaxy s4 is here. we're previewing the features. and why you might be giving up more of yourself these days on
of plant management and customer service. the obama administration is in charge of the i.t. network required for all that. >> how will this affect cost were states on average? >> it is unclear. there is money and they forgo care act for that. some of that is impacted by sequestration. everyone is convinced that the obama administration will make sure that there is money to set off the exchanges, regardless of the impact of sequestration. >> where are we in the process? sequestration is happening now. but as far as one exchanges have to be set up, there have been several deadlines that have been put in place. >> some are several months away. but in terms of the forgo care act, it turns exchanges need to be running october 1, in order to be in compliance. there are a lot of questions as whether they will be ready in time to get those complex i.t. networks in place in time and whether states that have held out for for where they want to do will have enough time. >> any chance they will be able to get some sort of delay or exemption from the federal government? >> they haven't had expli
governors asking, republican governors and democratic governors and the obama administration says yes, provided we protect the welfare and work requirements. republicans decided to lie about it and say the president and the administration did exactly the opposite of what they actually did. he took the work requirements out of welfare. he just wants a free ride for everybody. he's buying votes with the free welfare, obama money. it's not true at all. it was the opposite of what the administration had done. the republicans thought they had something. mitt romney made a campaign ad out of it. a few days before the election, romney made another campaign ad out of the same untrue thing. it was a lie. it was debunked. it was one of the brighter, more obvious campaigns of a campaign filled with lies. it was the lie you only try in the hottest heat of an election year when you are desperate because nothing else is working. now, bizarrely, in cold, cold march, it is back. republicans are pushing a bill right now in this congress to stop the thing that only existed in mitt romney's campaign ads
on the obama administration for declining to testify at a hearing focusing on the american pastor jailed in iran. today's hearing is part of a larger meeting to discuss the plight of religious minorities in that country. elizabeth prann is live in washington with more. elizabeth, let's talk about timing. why is this hearing taking place now? >> reporter: there is certainly growing international spotlight on the human rights crisis in iran. the state department's absence was noted immediately during a capitol hill commission hearing focusing on the imprisoned american pastor, saeed abedini. >> one notable absence, is unfortunately is the u.s. department of state. i was amazed a hearing which was called to highlight the plight of religious minorities in iran, not to mention the imprisonment of one of our own very own american citizens was not deemed important enough to the department. >> there is a fundamental problem for saeed abedini's case. i'm a litigator. i spend most of my time. you look where is the problem the problem in his case is the state department is awol. they are absent wit
crisis, president obama used to sequester gusty -- sequester cutso claim his administration has already made enough cuts to get the deficit under control, the very same sequester that he spent more than a month trying to scare the american people about. >> we don't have immediate crisis in terms of debt if the sequester stays in. you have over three and a half trillion dollars in deficit reduction already. lou: considering the president's so-called our reach to republicans, my first guest tonight says republicans have a frank discussion with the president but says also, there are still significant policy differences. joining us now, congressman, member of the committee, chairman of the subcommittee on immigration, border security, member of the house oversight committee. congressman, great have you with us. it does not sound like the president was expecting much, and he delivered. what do you think? >> well, i appreciate all of the rest of the conference appreciate in making the trip to capitol hill. as you noted, it has been veral years. the ideological rift between the two parties is
three times higher in the obama administration. the number of new establishments, entrepreneurial activity, for the year-ending march 2010 --march, 2010, was lower than any other year since the series began. since they began keeping record, mr. speaker. in 2010 under this administration's stimulus policies, entrepreneurial activity was at the lowest level in america since we began keeping records. i don't mean at the lowest level of people succeeding. i mean the lowest level of people trying. the lowest level of people trying, mr. speaker. what does it mean about us? what does it mean about our future when we have beaten the enthusiasm to try out of our people? frightened it out of our people. mr. speaker, that's not just a department of labor report. we talk a lot about that. what is it that the guys down at the agencies are producing, those technical reports. ill a tell you what they are producing, i'll tell you the impact it's had. the federal register, mr. speaker, i don't he know if you picked up a copy since you have been here. the federal register measures all the new regul
under the obama administration of the past four years has averaged 24 and a half percent of gdp. you can see how like those are. the president's charm offensive is turning out to be far less energetic than his assault on fiscal reality and the truth. and this word sustainable drives me crazy when he says it. sustainable. here's the deal, if i can indulge in a little our work. this is a building. okay? and this is us. okay? we leap off the building and we get to about your. now, right now -- and this is before. this is a sustainable, i guess, and the president's you. but what happens when you hear? this, we don't want to do. the problem is, if you don't do something between here and here sustainable, sustainable becomes a meaningless word. what we really need to do is return to fiscal truth and reality so that we don't have to find out about this part of the equation. you can bet that mainstream liberal media will in no way hold the president accountable for his physical charm, and it is not certain republicans think it is worth there while to talk to a man who is in utter denial or compe
of immigration reform, the current debate, is employers will be held accountable. the obama administration had actually been enforcing the immigration laws, has been directorate number of audits and still the workplace audits as well. and holding employers accountable more than any previous administration. the legislation -- in order for it to function, there have to be take components. people need to be brought out of the shadows and allowed to apply for earned his citizenship and secondly, employers need to be held accountable, particularly from labor law violations. if employers know they can hire and exploit workers then get away with that, they will continue to do so even after we have immigration reform. labor law protection as a major component of enforcement of the laws is an extremely important deterrent to future unlawful immigration. host: story from politico earlier this month. senate stop on lower skilled workers. -- stuck on low-skilled workers. talk about this effort. guest: the issue of any future immigrants who come on employment-based visas is but that the fault line. chamber
the obama administration is planning, is drawing up plans to give intelligence agencies full access to a massive database that contains financial info on american citizens and others who bank inside the u.s. the plan is part of an effort to track terror networks and organized crime but is raising all kinds of privacy concerns. chief washington correspondent james rosen live in our d.c. bureau. now, where does this new plan originate, james, and exactly how would it work? >> reporter: jon, good morning. the secret document that lays out this new plan obtained by reuters is a project of the treasury department's financial crimes enforcement network. under existing law banks and other financial institutions are required to file reports anytime they red flag suspicious activity such as the movement of more than $10,000 in a single transaction, unusual structuring of accounts and so forth. the fbi enjoys full access to these report, but the nation's intelligence agencies must make case-by-case requests for them. this new document proposes the database be linked directly to the nation's i

for welfare be waived? the house says no. lawmakers passed a bill preventing the obama administration from waiving the work requirement. last summer the obama administration said it would grant waivers to some of the rules but not one state applied. is that an i.e.d. in your pocket? the t.s.a. wouldn't know. agents at newark airport completely outmatched by an undercover fed who stuck an i.e.d. in his pants and slipped past two security check points. even worse, the t.s.a. excuse now, a member of the t.s.a. blog team says it's just too darned hard for agents to find bombs. >>steve: that says it all. >>alisyn: they're busy frisking grandmothers. >>steve: every one of them. >>brian: why can't you straighten this out? it's right by your house. can you just go in there -- >>steve: every time we go through, we pretty much get strip searched. they figure my wife is clearly a terrorist. the top story, the fact that we have a new pope in addition to a pope emeritus. it was interesting, when the news came out, the president of the united states was in front of house republicans, and he said -- the
joking around with dennis rodman. the united states, the obama administration, right now taking the north's threats of a nuclear attack very seriously. the pentagon has just announced it will beef up america's defense missile systems out on the west coast. in california, oregon, washington state. let's go straight to cnn's pentagon correspondent chris lawrence, watching what's going on. chris, a lot of us are stunned by this decision but update us on what is going on. >> wolf, we just came out of a briefing where we learned the pentagon is going to spend a billion dollars to put new intercepter missiles on the west coast. now, that plan includes react investigating a missile field that the obama administration deactivated just a few years ago when it concluded that north korea didn't pose enough of a threat. if a nuclear missile is ever fired at the united states, this is the best hope to stop it. 30 interceptor missiles which can be launched from ground silos in alaska and california. now the pentagon is deploying up to 14 more. >> the reason we're doing what we're doing and the reason w

the obama administration created to protect consumers from abuse by financial institutions. republicans refused to confirm the president's first fully qualified choice to lead the bureau, elizabeth warren, and now 43 republican senators are pledging to block confirmation of richard cordray, unless democrats agree to dramatically cut the agency's authority. today, he had his confirmation hearing in front of the senate banking committee, including its new member, the now senior senator from massachusetts, elizabeth warren. >> i think the delay in getting him confirmed is bad for consumers, it's bad for small banks, it's bad for credit unions, it's bad for anyone trying to offer an honest product in an honest market. the american people deserve a congress that worries less about helping big banks and more about helping regular people who've been cheated on mortgages, on credit cards, on student loans, on credit reports. i hope you get confirmed. you have earned it, director cordray. so let's break down this play. charles? uh, charles couldn't make it. his single miles card blacked him out
, obvious overshooting by the obama administration has grown a lot of life back as has the gathering of these young people in cpac and i think that despair is a temporary phenomenon. it's going to dissipate very quickly. >> tucker: charles krauthammer, the only person i met who speaks in perfect sentences, perfectly grammatically and perfectly formed. you're not reading that. >> i've been reading off notes written in code-- >> teleprompter. >> sure. >> tucker: coming up-- >> a great job and therefore it should be built and also provides energy security for our country, for north america. it's a no-brainer this should be built. >> tucker: that was max baucus going against the president and saying we need to build the keystone pipeline and ought to do it right now. he's proposed legislation that would give congress the authority to green light that project. we'll talk with iowa congressman steve king for reaction with that. a local new york state sheriff fears gun laws will give fears gun laws will give criminals an upper [ man ] i got this citi thankyou card and started earning loads
you breathing a sigh of relief? >> if you talk about the labor unions, and what the obama administration was doing with that, that is ridiculous. i'll fight with my fellow competitors even in south carolina to protect our right to work stat us in north carolina and my neighbors competing states, that very important. neil: regardless, both and other companies to look to right-to-work states, your own included, that is not disrupted by whatever problem it had? >> no. no, not at all. and the other thing, we have to be careful is not accept federal money, which also often requires union work hold, work. those are other things we have to fight, but we'll provide, good education, at our universities, two year community colleges. and great quality of life, second to none. neil: all right governor a pleasure thank you, sir. >> thank you very much. neil: all right, this just in dow hitting another record high, eking to it, but a gain is a gain, and a record is a record. another number you may not be looking at it be signalling this rally is about on be -- carterrized. neil: forget
in the obama administration will put the political -- their political capital on the line to change this system when there's a the a lot of resistance to do just that. >> manu and shira, thank you for being with us. >> thanks. >> thank you. >>> mitt romney is expected to reemerge this week with a speech speech at the cpac conference. but he is still being taunted for a comment he made. >> there are 47% of the americans who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, you name it. and so my job is not to worry about those people. i will never convince them to take responsibility and care for their lives. >> the man who recorded that was a man who was a bartender that night. he never told the staff that the speech was off the record. the bartender felt like it was his civic duty to release the video. check ed schultz interview tonight at 8:00 p.m. eastern. there will be a preview in our next hour. of course, i had no idea what it was. i felt like my feet were going to sleep. it progressed from there to burning like i was walking on hot coals to like a thousand bees that wer
: it would be great if the obama administration simply released the information and told us what was actually happening. that would be great. but so far they have not been very forthcoming. and with a compliant mainstream media, people aren't asking a lot of questions. while the smoking gun is actually reporting the story about how blumenthal's e-mail account had been hacked and how the four e-mails that had been sent to hillary have now been distributed to members of congress and members of the media, they haven't revealed what's in the memo. >>brian: there is no information that's inside. you could say it would be great for the obama administration to come forward. but nobody thinks that personal interaction should be public. when you e-mail your personal friend and attorney, you don't want that to be published. >>steve: remember what happened with wikileaks and julian as sang and the guys at wikileaks, as soon as they got their hands on the stuff at the bush white house, let's put it out there for everybody to see. it's interesting to see what the people in the press, the restraint they're
an aggressive outreach program that has grown under the obama administration, particularly through the president's stimulus package. these expanded initiatives include the collaboration between the usda and the mexican government officials to promote participation in targeted communities which teaches recruiters how to convince working class families into dependence. the obama administration has conducted over 30 meetings with the mexican government personnel since he took office. since this program began in 2004, the united states taxpayer has funded this participation with the mexican government to promote the snap program by holding 29 health fairs and traveling to 19 cities. the usda in coordination with the mexican government has conducted an aggressive campaign issuing guidance to state and local agencies with a record 91 meetings focusing on growing the outreach program to expand enrollment in snap. and none of these meetings were needed to point them in the direction of job training programs or employment searches that would offer much greater opportunity than whatever the federal govern
's office politics, michael isikoff, he's been on the front lines reporting on the obama administration's controversial drone policy. i asked him about the uproar and the catalyst for the recent scrutiny. >> what we did was get ahold of the justice department white paper which laid out the legal reasoning that would justify the use of lethal force, drone strikes, although it doesn't mention drone strikes, against american citizens. and while the administration officials had given a couple speeches on the subject, the white paper filled out some of the blanks in those speeches and gave a fuller explanation of the legal reasoning, and in some ways when i think significantly went beyond what had been stated publicly. particularly, and this is relevant very much to the discussion of the iraq war, what it called -- what it described as a, quote, broader concept of imminence. the first test as to whether or not a president can use lethal force to kill an american citizen is does that citizen, is he engaged in activity that poses an imminent threat to american citizens? that's the first test.
. >> the obama administration officially ending all white house tours. >> but with a perfectly appropriate donation of a half million dollars, president obama will come to you. >> jonathan, that was karl rove's american crossroads, they're running that ad, they take that idea seriously. that they are in a position to criticize o.f.a. for raising money and supposedly selling influence. >> look, the 2012 campaign will be remembered for having built the largest, most sophisticated grassroots political organization of all time. you know what the average donation was to o.f.a.? $65. this is an army of millions of donors. the real question about it is whether the people who gave during the campaign will now step up and realize, they have to send in their contributions of $15, $20, $50 in order to advance the president's agenda. o.f.a. made a big mistake a couple of weeks ago in saying they would accept so-called dark money. which is money that you don't have to disclose. and they've now reversed themselves, that was a really bad idea. now that they're on record for transparency, if the people st
the obama administration. the republican legislation has little pass of passing in the democratically controlled senate. last summer the administration said it would be willing to grant state labor of some of the welfare reform requirements. not one state applied for the waiver. >>> are you ready for a good time? >> she has a figure that makes the number 8 look like the number 1 and a smile that lights up the night. and it all belongs to kid dynamite! >> after all this time, the groundbreaking tv show is headed to the big screen. >>steve: thank goodness. >>alisyn: you've been waiting a long time. sony is making the film expected to keep good times in its 1970's setting. no word on who will be starting in it. >>brian: jimmy walker is here, one of our favorite all-time guests. he says the cast didn't get along at all. i don't know if i can watch a movie knowing in real life they don't get along in sitcom life. and they resent the word "dine-o-mite" >>steve: they didn't like he had one word catch phrase. a live look at the six-foot copper chimney where any moment smoke could rise from t
house for us. how much of a problem is north korea right now for the obama administration? >> reporter: well, i think it is a problem, craig. the obama administration had been hoping when kim jong-un took over that he would help to lead north korea out of isolationism. really the opposite has happened. he's become more bellicose than his father and these intercepters are going to be placed because of recent provocations from north korea and there is a sense that they've made advances in nuclear capabilities. last week, north korea threatened a preemptive nuclear strike against the united states and also they're ending their treaty with south korea. to there is a lot of concern. we should say this move to increase the number of intercepters marks a shift in the obama administration's policy, because back in 2010, they had said they weren't going to add new intercepters. this comes as president obama is just starting his second term. he's mapped out an ambitious agenda. but experts say this is going to take up a large portion of the next several years, concerns about north korea and iran
, for immigration, for gun control, for a variety of issues that the obama administration is is trying to push. >> but the question is, lauren, can... even though the o.f.a. has gotten the 33 million facebook friends and 22 million twitter followers and so on, can it galvanize the kind of grass roots support that it did during a campaign when you had a definite opponent in mitt romney and not just... >> brown: exactly. the question is, what are they asking people to do? during a campaign it's vote for me and get your friends to vote for me. >> right. brown: what do they ask now? it's give me $5 and give me your email. when they posted an article, they posted an article on barack obama dot-com by jim massena the former campaign manager who is now running o.f.a. 47 people tweeted it. for obama for for president obama and his group to have that kind of article sitting on barack obama and only have 47 people tweet it shows that they're not getting the ground swell of support that they did during the presidential election. >> but they may be getting the ground swell support from well-heeled donors
this thing here now with this obama administration where they treat our enemies with much more concern than they do our friends. >> sean: here we have sequester weekend and he gave morsi 250 million taxpayer dollars and yet, he's closing down the white house. let me ask you about the other three situations i brought up. north korea, russia and china. these are significant. there seems to be willingness to take liberties with this president. >> sean, they're pushing a president they think is a-- is weak. >> sean: is a weak president. >> i hate to say that. >> sean: isn't he weak because he hasn't responded, has he? >> sure, the idea of leading from behind says okay, you want to lead from behind we're going to push you as far as we can push you until we get some kind of reaction and get as much advantage as we can. this whole idea of basically destroying our navy is idiotic when you consider that in china, a great debate is going on as to how big their navy should be. because they want to control the pacific, or some of them do. china, after all, is a dynamic society. there are people in chin
